Sand Castle




Introduction: Sand Castle

About: I'm just making some ideas to become real.

I am a teacher.
All the kids like stories!!! I like to tell stories to them, but whit a scenario this becomes more real. Once  again I needed to build something for telling a story about a poor Ogre...

So I made this Castle whit simply materials...


You can do your own too.
Surprise your kids ! Tell stories!
Their imagination will go far far away...

So let's pump it!
